Published

on

Who is Guaynaa?

Jean Carlos Santiago Pérez, known artistically as Guaynaa, was born on 16th September 1992, in Caguas, Puerto Rico. The Virgo musician, who has had several chart-topping hits, is 5ft 8ins (1.72m) tall, and weighs about 150lbs (68kgs).

Musical Beginnings

Before pursuing a music career, Guaynaa aspired to become a petro-chemical engineer, and also worked as a ‘phone salesman. However, life had other plans for him, and he released his first two singles in 2018. “Pirateando” failed to make waves in the charts, but “Rebota” was a commercial success, peaking at #33 on the US Latin Airplay charts, and going platinum four times.

In 2019, Guaynaa released various singles such as “La Stripper”, “Bugalú”, and “Chicharrón”. The majority of his works didn’t mirror “Rebota”’s success, but the rapper teamed up with Nicky Jam and other Latin artists for the remix of the single, which peaked at #28 on the US Latin charts and #24 on the Spanish charts.

From his debut album, entitled “BRB Be Right Back”, Guaynaa released the singles “Full Moon”, “Rompe Rodillas”, and “Mera”. Popular Latin artists with decades of experience in the industry such as Yandel joined forces with the rookie rapper, ensuring him millions of views on YouTube and other streaming platforms.

2020

In 2020, Guaynaa took a new approach in his career, focusing on collaborating with artists such as Mariah Angeliq and Farruko, instead of putting out solo singles.

“Se Te Nota”, a collaboration with Venezuelan-American artist Lele Pons, was certified platinum three times by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and peaked at #18 on the Argentinian charts, being seen millions of times on YouTube. Spotify and other platforms heavily promoted the single, which placed it on diverse playlists.

However, in 2020 Guaynaa’s breakthrough single was “Chica Ideal”, in which he collaborated with pop singer Sebastian Yatra.

The romantic single was certified platinum two times by the RIAA, and reached #1 on the US Latin Airplay and US Latin Rhythm charts. Coincidentally, the single was Guaynaa’s last project of the year.

In 2021, Guaynaa has released five singles with other artists: “Monterrey” with Pain Digital, “Demente” with Chungha, “Calle” with Lola Indigo and Cauty, “Cumbia a la gente” with Los Ángeles Azules, and “Nos Volvimos Locos” with Gloria Trevi.

The most popular single so far has been “Nos Volvimos Locos”, which reached #9 and #12 on the Puerto Rican and Mexican charts respectively. Apart from Lola Indigo, almost all of Guaynaa’s associated acts this year have been less popular artists.

Guaynaa’s Personal Life

Not much is known about Guaynaa’s personal life before fame, but he is currently dating Lele Pons, who has almost 50 million followers on Instagram, which has also benefited his career and helped him cross over artistically.

Lele was born in June 1996; her father, Luis Guillermo Pons Mendoza, worked as an architect, and her mother, Ana Maronese Pivetta, is a pediatrician. At just five years old, Lele and her family relocated to Miami, Florida, USA. She studied at Miami Country Day School, then moved to Los Angeles, California, shortly afterwards. In high school, Lele encountered difficulties making friends and also suffered bullying.

Being diagnosed with Tourette syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder wasn’t an impediment for Lele, as she worked to accomplish her personal goals. She became popular on Vine, the first user on the platform to reach a million views; from then on, she used her social media success as the foundations for her music career.

In 2015, the blonde beauty released her jewelry collection, UNO Magnetic. The following year she published “Surviving High School” with Melissa de la Cruz, and also starred in a YouTube romcom which was produced by AwesomenessTV.

Other highlights in Lele’s career include hosting the Mexican version of singing show “La Voz” in 2018, and presenting the 19th Annual Latin Grammy Awards with Spanish artist Aitana, who shot to fame on the talent show “Operación Triunfo”. She also co-hosted the 2019 Billboard Women in Music Awards.

To date, the biggest artists whom Lele has collaborated with have been the Black Eyed Peas and American rapper Saweetie. She has also starred in several indie shorts such as “Latino Hunger Games” and “Insane Kids”.

Some of the artists’ most popular singles are her 2018 solo release “Celoso” and her collaboration with Guaynaa, “Se Te Nota”. The exact date when the artists began dating is unknown, but if you look on their Instagram profiles, both musicians post cute snaps regularly and dedicate each other sweet captions.

From amusing TikTok videos to TV appearances, the pair have done almost everything together.

At first, some cynics claimed that the public relationship between Lele and Guaynaa was to promote their joint single, but with time they proved the denigrators wrong.

Lele’s popularity is also due to her openness: she readily admitted to getting a nose job in 2013, and has also endeared fans by sharing her previous struggles. The singer has also proudly documented the fitness journey she embarked on with Guaynaa, uploading photos in June 2021 of the rapper’s before and after with the caption “Couple transformation”.

Published

on

Who is Yui Mizuno?

Yui Mizuno is a musician, singer, and model, perhaps best recognized as a former member of the Kawaii metal band “Babymetal”, and idol group “Sakura Gakuin”. She was born under the Zodiac sign Gemini on 20 June 1999, in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, so as of 2021, she’s 22 years old and holds Japanese nationality.

Family, Parents, Bio, Wiki

The names of her parents are unknown, but Yui is the middle child and has two brothers. While there is a scarcity of information regarding her early life, it’s known that while Yui attended an elementary school, some of her family members were diagnosed with a life-threatening sickness. As she was too young to be let into the intensive care department, she spent most of her visits waiting in the hallways, hoping that her family would recover.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BaEJDq8hPti/

The family doctor suggested they play some music for young Yui to relieve the stress of the situation; Yui mostly listened to the all-girl group entitled “Karen Girl’s” whose music gave her courage and patience in these moments of hardship. Having been amazed by the group, she also developed an interest in becoming a singer or band member. Nothing is known about her educational endeavors.

Rise to Stardom

From an early age, Yui was featured as a model and actress in various ads and videos. In 2006, she appeared in the Magazines entitled “Shogakuichinensei” and “Putchigumi”. Two years later, she appeared in the TV commercial “Bandai, Pretty Cute”, followed by another modeling gig featuring in the Tokyo Kids Collection AW fashion show.

In 2009 she landed a minor role in the series “MW Chapter 0, Akuma No Game”, marking her TV debut as an actress. Yui additionally portrayed Hori Shizyo in the movie “Happi Basude”, directed by Kozo Nagayama, which was a part of the night’s Special of Fuji TV entitled “Japan’s Forgotten”. In 2010 she landed the role of Kyoko Yamauchi in the drama series “Kioku No Umi”, before switching to music.

Career

In August 2010, Yui, alongside Kikuchi Moa, joined the idol group “Sakura Gakuin”, managed by the recording and talent agency Amuse. As a band member of the group, it meant becoming a member of smaller groups called “clubs”; the sub-groups recorded differing singles to other clubs. Yui and Moa joined the Baton Club and their musical group “Twinklestars”, and additionally performed with another sub-unit entitled “Mini-Pati”.

Later they were joined by Suzuka Nakamoto in the “heavy metal club”, and the idea to form a kawaii metal band was born, a type of musical genre that combines elements of heavy metal and J-pop, which was very popular in 2010 Japan. It also incorporates cute themes, Japanese idol aesthetic, and heart-warming lyrics, which are not generally associated with hard rock and heavy metal.

Even though none of them knew anything about metal music, it didn’t stop them from embarking on this journey of experimenting with a different genre, and they formed the band entitled “Baby Metal”, considered by many a true pioneer in the genre of kawaii metal, and often credited with popularizing it. Their current YouTube channel has over 2 million subscribers with over 500 million views.

Their first album entitled “Babymetal” was released in 2014, and it quickly found its way to the U.S. Billboard charts.

The band “Sakura Gakuin” also released several albums with Yui, such as “Sakura Gakuin  Nendo: Message” and “Sakura Gakuin Nendo: Friends”.

Yui moved on from the “Sakura Gakuin” in 2015 and began performing exclusively as a member of “Babymetal”, which became an independent recording group. Soon Yui and Moa dipped their toes into songwriting, and collaboratively wrote the track entitled “Song 4” using the Black Babymetal alias.

Babymetal Group

Following the success of their first album, they began their first tour in the United Kingdom as a supporting band for Lady Gaga on her ArtRave: The Artpop Ball 2014 Tour.

In April 2016, the group recorded their second album, “Metal Resistance”, landing on the charts in Japan, the UK and the U.S – the band holds the title as the highest-charting Japanese group on United Kingdom’s Official Albums Chart.

In 2018, the band embarked on US tour, but many noted that Yui wasn’t performing with the rest of the band. Rumors began circulating as to why she was absent, and whether she was a member of the band, which prompted a representative of the 5B Management, a company which represented the band, to disclose the following: “Yui remains a member of the band, but she is not on this current U.S. tour.” However, in June 2018, the band started their European tour, and Yui was still absent from the band.

Why did she leave the group?

In October 2018, “Babymetal” released the official statement that Yui would not perform with the band on the following tours, and was no longer a member due to undisclosed illness. Yui also announced via social media that she had left the band, and might launch a solo career in the future, she wrote: “Sorry to sadden the fans who have supported Babymetal. I had the strong desire to appear on the stage again, but my physical condition is not at its best even now. And further I feel that I would like to pursue my dream. It is these factors that led to my decision”. On the other hand, the two remaining members of the band continued making music, and chose not to replace Yui, in an interview they disclosing “We wanted to continue BABYMETAL and continue the tradition.

Also there’s just no-one like Yuimetal, so it’s not an easy replacement. And that’s why we decided – Su-Metal and Moametal – to form the core of BABYMETAL.”

Where is she now?

After her public statement, both Yui and “Babymetal” went radio silent. Additionally, her leaving sparked a lot of controversy and speculation about her illness, and whether there was more to that story. Some pointed out that the Japanese music industry is brutal, and band members and performers often go through physically challenging and exhausting regimes often consisting of dancing classes, learning etiquette, and extreme diets.

Considering she fainted a couple of times while performing, some of her fans noted that she seemed exhausted.

Even though she gave some hints of pursuing a solo career, since she left the band in 2018, she still hasn’t released any music, nor attended any public event. Considering that she isn’t a fan of social media, it’s hard to track down what she is currently doing.

Personal life

Nothing is known about her dating history and romantic interests; according to the latest reports, she remains single.

What is her net worth?

As of 2021, her estimated net worth is around $1 million, earned through her career as a model, singer, and actress.
